In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahhab, was born in 1115 H. in the city of Uyainah, seventy kilometers northwest of Riyadh, the capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He acquired his primary education from his esteemed father at his native place and was nurtured under his guidance. He was intelligent enough to memorize the Qur’an by heart at the very tender age of ten only. He read the books on Tafseer (exegesis), Hadith and Fiqh. From the very outset, he was greatly interested in studying the works of early scholars, particularly those of Sheikh-­ul-Islam Ibn Taimiyah and his noble disciple Allamah Ibn Qaiyim. He went through all those books and well grasped the contents. On attaining the age of maturity, he set out to perform Hajj at Makkah and derived benefits from the scholars there. He then proceeded to Al-Madinah, met the learned ones there, and adopted the studentship of two renowned erudite, Sheikh Abdullah bin Ibrahim bin Sa’id Najdi and Sheikh Muhammad Hayat Sindhi for a long period. Out of the curiosity for higher education, he took also the journey to Iraq and Basrah and got himself benefited there.

The sin of shirk – or associating partners with Allah – is the most reprehensible act that a person can do. It is for this reason that this sin is the one sin that Allah has promised He will never forgive. Unfortunately many Muslims who are unaware of the reality of shirk fall into it out of ignorance. This short treatise is an ideal work for the Muslim in order to understand the essence of shirk, and thus essential reading for the one who wishes to avoid falling into the greatest trap of shaytan.

Explanation of the Nullifiers of Islam

The Nullifiers of Islam – like many of the writings of al-Imaam Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahhaab (rahimahu-llah) – though small in size, is great in benefit. It’s subject is of the utmost importance to each and every Muslim: i.e. those matters, whether speech, action or beliefs, which cause someone to go out of the fold of Islam [after having entered it]. The author has only listed ten of those things which nullify someone’s Islam, focusing upon those which are the most dangerous and those which most commonly occur. Though the author has only mentioned the evidence for these nullifiers in brief, additional evidences, notes and tafseer have been taken from various commentaries of those who have written explanations of this very important essay by Shaykh Abdur-Ra’uf Shakir in his explanation.

Conditions And Pillars Of The Prayer

This is a translation of the beneficial treatise of Imaam Muhammad bin Abdil-Wahhaab, Shuroot as-Salaat wa Arkaanuhaa wa Waajibaatuhaa. In this short treatise, Imaam Muhammad bin Abdil-Wahhaab, may Allaah have mercy on him, briefly outlines the nine conditions for the acceptance of ones prayer, as well as the fourteen pillars and eight requirements of the prayer, mentioning some of their proofs and evidences from the Book and the Sunnah. A condition is something that is required before the commencement of prayer in order for it to be valid. The pillars are that which if one fails to perform any of them out of forgetfulness or intentionally, his prayer is rendered invalid because of his abandoning it. The requirements are that which if one fails to perform any of them intentionally, his prayer is rendered invalid due to his abandoning it, but if he leaves any of them due to forgetfulness, he is obligated to perform the (extra) prostrations for forgetfulness. The author also lists the conditions, obligations, requirements and nullifiers of wudoo (ablution). The translator has provided a quick reference guide as an appendix listing each of these points, as well as footnotes with hadeeth references and other comments gathered from several sources of this treatise.

Excellent Qualities of the Qur’an

Foreword from book, ‘ This is an English version of the book entitled Fada il-e-Qur’an originally written in Arabic by the Imam Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahab, an eminent Muslim Scholar, and translated into Urdu by Maulana Mahmud Ahmad Ghazanfar, Mab’uth, Dar al-Ifta, Government of Saudi Arabia. Strictly speaking it is not a literal rendering of the original; rather it is the presentation of the meaning of the original in easy English language; in presenting the meaning, however, an attempt has been made to be very close to the original. All footnotes are added by the Translator to clarify difficult phrases and words, and to provide the reader with more relevant information. It is hoped that this small book will be of great help to the Englishknowing reader in his understanding of the Holy Qur’an. I must record my sincere thanks to Maulana Ghazanfar for carefully going through the manuscript and making valuable suggestions for improving the rendering. May Allah accept this humble effort of a worker who is neither a well versed Scholar nor a reputed Writer, and forgive him for the mistakes and shortcomings due to his ignorance and lack of knowledge.Muhammad Iqbal Siddiqi.’
